The inventive spelling of the title reads somewhat silly in Norwegian and Danish since the Ø in broken is a letter in the alphabet in these languages and sounds like the "u" in "burden". In addition "brøken" is the Norwegian and Danish word meaning "the fraction". See more »
Whenever it shows the car-wreck (and the replays thereof), the "person" in the driver-seat is obviously a dummy. See more »
[opening screen, small text on black]
You have conquered and I yield.
Yet henceforward art thou also dead - dead to the World, to Heaven, and to Hope!
In me didst thou exist - and, in my death, see by this image, which is thine own, how utterly thou hast murdered thyself.
Edgar Allan Poe

If the music played during the first half of the closing credits sounds a bit off, that's because it's being played backwards. See more »
I would classify this movie as a horror only because of a certain gory bathroom scene. Otherwise, it is rather a psychological thriller topped with a great amount of fantasy. I extremely loved the concept of the creepy body invaders as well as the mysteriously breaking mirrors that just added up to the eerie atmosphere.
Occasionally, I felt the movie to be a wee bit repetitive, showing the accident from various angles over and over again and the story was also quite easy to puzzle out after a while. However, these factors do not make the movie less enjoyable. Also, many complained about the slow pace and the lack of "action" but honestly, I liked the fact that the film wasn't filled up with unnecessary carnage and slaughter and that thanks to the slow flowing of the movie I had time to contemplate on what was going on instead of getting ready-made answers, even though towards the end everything became pretty obvious, if one payed close attention.
All in all, it was a good suspense movie and I wouldn't mind watching it again.
